"A witty saying proves nothing." -- Voltaire

I've always found that useful to keep in mind when reading threads like this.

I think this should go at the top of all monthly Rationality Quotes posts as an epigraph.

A monthly thread for posting any interesting rationality-related quotes you've seen recently on the Internet, or had stored in your quotesfile for ages.

  • Please post all quotes separately (so that they can be voted up/down separately) unless they are strongly related/ordered.
  • Do not quote yourself.
  • Do not quote comments/posts on LW/OB - if we do this, there should be a separate thread for it.
  • No more than 5 quotes per person per monthly thread, please.
